For this meticulously detailed biography, Rosenthal has interviewed more than a hundred of Peterson’s family, friends, and associates to create a fully rounded portrait of this hero of the conservation movement. Never-before-seen photographs enhance this intimate portrayal. The book will be timed for his 100th birthday celebration in August, 2008.
Drawing on numerous interviews, Rosenthal (New Jersey state civil servant/freelance writer/birdlover) relates the life of the author of the Field Guide to the Birds (1934), which launched the Peterson field guide series and birdwatching as a popular pastime in the U.S. Previously unpublished photos show aspects of the life of the National Audubon Society naturalist who was born 100 years ago (and was a frequent truant from school until he joined the Junior Audubon Club); Peterson died in 1996.
